Game 2: Tuesday, May 26th – 7:07 ET
The Blue Jays will start R.A. Dickey in game two and hope to see more of the same from the veteran. Dickey had his strongest outing of the season in his past start, throwing a complete game against the Los Angeles while striking out seven and walking just two. He did allow four earned runs, but these deep starts with two-to-four runs against are what the Jays need consistently from the knuckler.
Lefty John Danks will counter for the White Sox after one of his weakest outings, allowing five earned runs on four walks and six hits over 5.1 IP against the Cleveland Indians. Danks enters with a 5.11 ERA and 1.43 WHIP.
Danks will usually sit around three to five strikeouts per start and shouldn’t creep too far over 90 MPH with his fastball. He will also feature a cutter with a frequent low-80’s changeup when he’s ahead in the count.
